    Hello jim,

    Hoping your good. I came across a thread you posted to a few years ago.
    "Instead of carrying 2 keys, you could have a 'custom 'key made. One side for the key can be cut to fit the door, the other to fit the ignition lock. File a notch on one side of the head so you know which end opens the door and which runs the ignition. Problem solved."

    I have a two key setup on my 96 D1, one for the door and one for the ignition. Without tearing into anything I decided to try your option and the old timer key maker told me it wouldn’t work without both sides of the key being the same.

    With what you mentioned above is that only for people with sticky or worn door/ignition cylinders that have the two key setup? The key maker mentioned the old Fords could do it but not my Rover...

    Any thought would be much appreciated.
    Thanks,
    Toran
